This is the first IAEA publication dealing specifically with the decommissioning of non-reactor nuclear facilities. It applies particularly to the nuclear fuel cycle, including uranium conversion, enrichment and fuel fabrication facilities, reprocessing plants, and waste/spent fuel storage and treatment facilities, but also includes analytical and research laboratories. It highlights distinctive factors in the decommissioning of non-reactor nuclear facilities as compared to those for reactors and offers results from past, ongoing and planned decommissioning activities.
Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. Overview of non-reactor nuclear facilities; 3. Basic safety and radiological protection; 4. Decommissioning strategy and planning; 5. Decommissioning techniques and equipment; 6. Design and operational features to simplify decommissioning; 7. Decommissioning experience; 8. Conclusions; Appendix I: Shut down non-reactor nuclear facilities; Appendix II: Detailed data from various non-reactor nuclear facilities decommissioning projects; Annex: Problems encountered and lessons learned from decommissioning of selected non-reactor nuclear facilities; References; Bibliography; Glossary.
